If you have a pony, you might as well dress it up

On Halloween, my instructor promised candy to everyone who came in costume.

Wouldn’t you know, nobody – and I mean NOBODY – else did. O.k., a couple of people wore orange shirts. But Finn and I went whole hog. Could it be my acting background? The fact that I have kept a bunch of old costumes at home “just in case”?

I love dressing up and pretending to be someone else. It’s always nice to take a break from being yourself.  And Finn is happy to go along for the ride. The cloak looked fabulous streaming out behind us, although the clinking bag of coins (treasure “taken from the rich”) quickly became annoying and had to be discarded. I also have to admit that the beard and mustache, dapper while they lasted, melted off my face by the end of my lesson. It was a hot day here in California.

Find an occasion, and have some fun with your horse!

  1. Ahahaha! I love it!! I made a WWII plane costume for Clay last year and then dressed myself as Amelia Earhart. So fun, I love Halloween! Finny’s trace clip looks nice by the way! I wish it were warm enough here to clip, but with consistent -20 temps (and colder) for most of winter, I leave his hair alone and also blanket on top of that!

    • Would love to see your picture, Tonia! And Finn is already growing back his trace flip after only a month. I have to do it AGAIN. Hairy beast. He gets so sweaty every time I ride him, yuck.
